Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. -Helen Keller

IOW, keep looking up.



Fun Tweets, You Have To Be This Old Edition

Well, not to argue the point, but that is what the song says. If you’re old, you know.

Also, thank a mailperson today. They bring you stuff.

“If you are in difficulties with a book, try the element of surprise: attack it at an hour when it isn’t expecting it.” ― H.G. Wells

We are adding an #amreading page, mainly for our own benefit. We will include some kind of rating system, and recommendations re; the books posted on said page. Again, it is mainly for our benefit, as we tend to lose track of which of the hundreds of books (mostly digital) we’ve read, and which we haven’t. We read, like, a lot. You should too.


Fun Tweets, Mars Edition

Now, you and we know there is a human operator behind the @SarcasticRover account, but it still blows our mind that there is a robot sending Us pictures from another planet! Also, it blows our mind that there are a number of robots in space sending Us pictures and information. From space!

Pretty soon, hopefully in our lifetimes, we’ll see humans on Mars looking at, and probably tripping over, those bullshit rocks.

“Art is longing. You never arrive, but you keep going in the hope that you will.” – Anselm Kiefer

After major updates to 3 machines Monday (all day, Monday!), we’re ready. We consider this art, of sorts. We long to do it – right. So, we will Keep Going, and hope we’re doing it right.

“You never fail until you stop trying.” ― Albert Einstein

We’ve been away for a while. Things haven’t been too positive, really. At least we haven’t found a whole lot to be positive about. That is until a recent mini-eureka moment. We can do this. If for no other reason than a personal health benefit. If what we’re going to do here reaches you, makes you smile, or gives you a slightly less shitty view of the world, too, well, we’re stoked.

So, we try again.

Stay Positive.

Today is National School Librarian Day. I’m sure we all have stories about our own school librarians, most involving telling us to “Shhhh!” Anyway, here’s a nice quote about librarians.

“Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.”
– Neil Gaiman

April 4th is National School Librarian Day. It is set aside to honor all school librarians. School librarians spend long hours keeping the library organized, helping our children find the resources they need to keep learning and are dedicated to creating an environment they can learn in every day of the year. All of this hard work often goes unappreciated.
